About

Dad Central is about
finding and creating a place
for all dads.

If you’ve found us, you’re either a dad or someone
who supports dads.

You might be a partner

A family organization, a childcare provider, a pre/post natal health unit, a community health organization or anyone related to supporting families.

our vision

At Dad Central our vision is to see every child have access to an involved, responsible, and devoted dad. We exist to connect, inspire and train dads and communities to build healthy children together.

If you’re a dad

In here you’ll find the most extensive library of resources and guidance for the dad journey. Whether it’s our new dad manual as you enter the world of being a dad, dealing with toddlers; working on your relationship with your partner, or balancing your time and energy, we have something to help.

We also connect dads

To each other and community organizations. Let’s face it, most dads usually go it alone. But you don’t have to. There is so much value in learning from other dads and getting guidance along the way. The results? You see yourself connecting with, enjoying and guiding your children to be their best. What more valuable return on your time invested than feeling the satisfaction and pride of seeing your child(ren) thrive?

If you’re an organization

You’ll find an equally extensive library of resources. You’ll also find tools and training to help you navigate the nuances of relating to and supporting dads. With years of research and program development behind us, we help you connect with dads, relate to their experiences and challenges, and engage them in the process of building healthy children together.
